Spiotti Fundraiser Today at Red Door

Music and food will be on hand to help Officer Brian Spiotti raise money today at the Red Door in Watertown. Spiotti was arrested earlier this year on allegations of assault after he arrested a suspect.

Differing allegations have been made surrounding the justification of Spiotti’s arrest as his court case moves forward. Spiotti is a 12 year veteran of the Wolcott Police Department and has been looked up to by many youth in Wolcott as a role model. Most recently in court, Spiotti’s request for accelerated rehabilitation was denied by a judge even though this is a common offer made by the state for first time offenders. The judge in the case stated that he felt police officers should be held to a higher standard. Given that this case may move to a trial, the need for financial support in Spiotti’s legal bills is ever more pressing.

Tickets will be available at the door. The fundraiser will be from noon until 6 pm. The Red Door is located on Main St. in Watertown in the center of town just south of St. John’s Church.
